’n’ roll women and even managed to get Elvis Presley hot and bothered,
is back with Unfinished Business.
Action Rod Lott
Preceding the start of The Expendables 2
is an ad for its tie-in video game. Why bother playing such a thing
when so many sequences of the the movie make you feel like you're doing
so already? I mean that as a compliment, because as directed by Simon
West (The Mechanic), the sequel’s 15-minute prologue is so unrelenting in nonstop action that it’s likely to turn you giddy.

Comedy Rod Lott
Meryl Streep is in a rut — not the actress, who's arguably still atop

roommate than a wife. They don't even share a bedroom any more.
